It’s all about speaking positive things into existence. Thinking, speaking and radiating goodness will drown out whatever things you consider unfavourable. When you are kind to yourself and others you can’t think about sad times. Remember your thoughts and words are powerful so use it wisely.
I committed myself to having a monthly “day of creativity”. A day where I would disconnect all devices, be in tuned with nature and release all the words that have been forcefully oppressed. I didn’t know what day I would choose; I thought about the same day each month, but that felt too predictable, and unlike me so I decided to let my body tell me when it was time. Many times I ignored my intuition and regretted it, so now I’m all for listening.
I had booked my birthday off intending to take a trip because I don’t work on my birthday anymore (a story for a future blog). I had the day off, and I had nothing planned because I couldn’t decide on anything and I couldn’t commit an extended trip because I had a workshop the following day. The first option was to do a day trip to somewhere in the UK but there wasn’t anything that stood out enough for me to have the tourist experience plus I didn’t give myself time to research places.
Then it came to me that I should use my birthday as the day to disconnect from the interweb to brew those creative juices. It would coincide with the year 2029 and a full moon. It was indeed a great time to reconnect with ones’ self.
At the beginning of the year, I made a vow that I would take the time to “go off the grid” to reset and realign focus on the things that are important to me. I heard of this idea when I went to a workshop last year. “It sparked creativity,” she said, and it was able to propel her in the personal and professional aspects of her life. I felt I needed to do that because I haven’t been able to write a poem in ages, and I felt shattered. All I was doing was writing for the blog, and I wanted to go back to the point where I was a creative on all levels. I did try “trials and error” days where I disconnected for a few hours, and I felt the difference. So this time I would do an entire day.
I turned off my computer, my phone and all other electronic devices (aside from my fridge). This was hard as I live in a(n) flat (apartment) that is electric. After I switched off everything, I could already feel the difference. My body was free from the electromagnetic wave, and I could begin the process of reflective and intentive meditation. I opened the windows, closed my eyes and allowed my sensory experience to commence.
It was so refreshing to consume so much of what nature had to offer. This left my brain so clear that the words were ready to be put down on paper. I would write and let the words flow; when I read it, it was as if these words were handpicked to be shared. I alternated between meditating and writing; I also created tasks for myself with deadlines and made affirmations to be said daily. After this day, I decided to make this at least a monthly thing. You should try this for it will change your life!
